I've realized that in being single I've become a lot less patient, and a lot less gentle in my confrontations. It's like after years of tip-toeing around someone else's emotions I finally let myself say what I feel. It's not that I've become mean, but if someone is bothering me I tell them so, and I tell them why. Somewhere in our relationship I stopped voicing my opinions as strongly in order to avoid the emotional fall-out I knew would follow. The result is that nothing changed. I find myself absolutely not missing having to compromise or let things slide. I have no real desire to start and foster a new relationship.

What a refreshing realization this has been. Maybe some day I will have the time and energy to be in a relationship...but right now I don't even have enough time for me.

Also I've realized that I'm not a Republican. I have no idea what I am...I think I'm screwed.

You still have time to figure out who you are. But people are evolving all the time - hopefully anyway, so don't be too alarmed if you never can totally pin yourself down!
I know the feeling of not wanting to compromise anymore, saying what you want to and need to - it's a wonderful feeling!! Healthy too I think. :)
